Smashing Pumpkins Share ‘Adore’ Outtake of “Let Me Give The World To You”

In addition to putting out a new album with Mötley Crüe’s drummer, the Smashing Pumpkins are reissuing their 1998 LP Adore this year to the happy applause of thousands of fans. The release will come with a bunch of bonus material, and today we get to peek at what that includes.

One of the album session’s unreleased songs, “Let Me Give The World To You,” sees its world premiere today. Technically the band put the single out several years down the road on Machina II, but this outtake sounds way different from that version. In terms of album placement, …

The Kooks Forgive Forget

Spin 360 Degrees in The Kooks’ “Forgive & Forget” Video

English indie rock heartthrobs The Kooks have dropped a new single titled “Forgive and Forget” this year as a precursor to their upcoming full-length, Listen, due out September 8 via Virgin/EMI (pre-orders are ongoing). In anticipation, they’ve shared a music video for the EP’s catchy title track.

The video shows all four members performing the song on a white, circular platform while modern go-go dancers in ’60s eye-ware twirl around them. In case their moves didn’t get your heart fluttering, the constant camera rotation will. Spin around in a full circle in what pans out as a bright …


Foo Fighters Tease Eight Seconds Of Their Eighth Studio Album

Today is August 8, which means it’s 8/8, and earlier today the members of Foo Fighters decided to share with fans a short, 8-seconds clip from the band’s upcoming eighth studio album. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. See a theme?

We have no idea when Foo Fighters will grace the world with their new album, but if the clip found below is any indication of what we can expect I think it’s safe to say the band is just as aggressive as ever. The footage released this morning features no music, but does offer Dave Grohl’s signature voice shouting “All …

Wu Tang Reunites

Wu-Tang Clan Reunites on ‘The Daily Show,’ Drops New Song

Despite the crazy year Wu-Tang Clan have had–from trying to sell a single album for over a million dollars to the whole penis-slicing incident–the nine living members set aside their busy schedules to reunite on prime television last night.

The group stopped by The Daily Show to chat with Jon Stewart about their upcoming album A Better Tomorrow and some of their best memories with ‘Ol Dirty Bastard (RIP). As they told Stewart, the record will drop this November. To prove they weren’t messing around, they performed “Ron O’Neal,” the record’s first single, live on the show with plenty of …

FKA Twigs

Stream FKA Twigs’ Debut Album ‘LP1′

Britain’s experimental R&B singer FKA Twigs drops her debut album, LP1, on August 12 via Young Turks. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full over at iTunes Radio.

The 10-track release follows up her last two EPs and features production from Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes, Paul Epworth, and Arca. We’ve already heard “Two Weeks” and “Video Girl,” but hearing them in context of the rest of the album does wonders. Pre-orders for the album are currently ongoing.

According to an interview with Pitchfork, FKA Twigs says she named the album because she didn’t know what …

Stevie Nicks

Listen to New Stevie Nicks Song “The Dealer”

Last year, Fleetwood Mac released their first new material in over a decade and made a triumphant return to the stage. After going through what must have been a treasure trove of material, Fleetwood Mac singer and general classic rock icon Stevie Nicks has rounded up old solo tracks and recorded some new ones for her new album, 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault, out October 7. 

The album’s unreleased tracks were primarily written between 1969 and 1987. One of those new songs is “The Dealer,” which Nicks has shared a lyric video for today. It’s the type of …


Action Bronson Prepares Us For ‘Mr. Wonderful’ With The Premiere of “Easy Rider”

Action Bronson has been the favorite emcee of your closest friend with a love for underground hip hop for longer than anyone cares to remember. In 2014, however, Bronson is stepping into the mainstream with plans to release his new album, Mr. Wonderful, before the end of the year. Today, the album’s first single debuted online.

You never know what to expect when Action Bronson steps into the booth, but you can almost always expect him to deliver a line or two that would sound completely ridiculous if delivered by anyone else in rap today. In “Easy Rider,” which …


Listen to Avi Buffalo’s New Single “Memories Of You”

On September 9, Avi Buffalo will drop their first album in four years, At Best Cuckold, on Sub Pop and then hit the road to tour in support of the release. We first got word of this along with the album’s excellent lead single and opening track, “So What,” but now we get a deeper glimpse into the record with single “Memories Of You,” which you can stream after the jump.

This time around, Avi Zahner-Isenberg’s California band takes a bolder approach with Revolver-like psychedelic spirals and light, high-pitched vocals that sound like a Thee More Shallows deep …

Wand Ganglion Reef

Listen to Wand’s New Single “Broken Candle”

Psych rock band Wand caught our attention and warranted a “Required Listening” label after dropping “Flying Golem” last month. Now the Los Angeles four-piece are back with a new track that’s keeping our brain in the exact type of acid-washed cabin we want to get cozy inside of.

“Broken Candle” sees Wand toying with tempo. With the same type of reverb and electronic tunnels as Tame Impala, it’s easy to feel like you’re traveling back to some of psychedelics best times in the mid-60s, but they keep things fresh with the sweetness of this year. Stream …

Foxygen And Star Power

Foxygen Announce New Album, Tour, Share “How Can You Really” Music Video

Last year saw constant back-and-forth press releases about LA retro pop duo Foxygen supposedly breaking up. Here we are in 2014, and not only are the band back together, but they’ve announced a new full-length, …And Star Power, out October 14 via Jagjaguwar. The album has a whopping 24 tracks and sees contributions from “a gaggle of guest stars.” According to the press release, it was recorded on a tape machine at the infamous Chateau Marmont and is filled with “psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, soft-rock indulgences, D&D doom rock, and paranoid bathroom rompers.” Take that as you will.
